    Tips for killing enemy crew without use of boarding parties

    While playing FTL, one of the jumps resulted in me picking up an angry spacer whose ship had just been captured by pirates. He requested my assistance in retaking his ship which, he stressed, would entail not destroying it.

    I had no crew teleporters so I proceeded in destroying the enemy ship's oxygen supply subsystem until the oxygen drained to below 5% (I know this because I got the achievement). I waited a while and... nothing. I realized they might be healing so I also disabled the medbay as well. Waited a while and... nothing. I didn't have scanners level 2 so I didn't know for sure what was going on but all the enemy crew must have died, no? In any case the ship kept firing and I was eventually forced to destroy it, much to the dismay of the spacer I picked up.

    Was there any way to complete that mission successfully without me having any crew teleporters?

  • If you only have one crew member left, can he be killed by events that kill one random crew member? Or does FTL make sure events always leave you with at least one person to play captain (allowing you to "predict the outcome" of those scenarios)? By that I mean scenarios like Giant Alien Spiders in which a random crew member gets killed instantly; not events such as an enemy boarding the ship and killing your crew member through standard combat.

  • it is. I figure since it says "Defeated" they have to die from the hit, so I tried weakening the enemy first, then blocking and attacking so they die instantly. Are there any specific enemies... the same thing: This trophy will pop up during natural gaming. Block an enemy’s attack with [circle] and then hit [square] immediately after to execute a parry.

Would he be transferred to me when... on. Now, seeing as the land I had given him was useless anyway, I gave him a better one. Still not enough to win the war, but at least he'd still have a title while I plotted revenge. Coincidentally, my ruler died shortly after, and the heir became a young king with a strong goal to take out the garbage. I knew the count wanted a duchy, so I planted my spy master there and waited a few years, untill he

  • It says it 'heals all friendly crew in the room' and 'can target your own ship'. Now I would assume that the specification of friendly would mean I could board an enemy ship, and use this weapon to heal my assault team during battle without healing the enemy crewmembers. I have no ships with a transporter to test this. Am I correct in my assumption?

  • , I wonder if there are any remotely effective techniques for destroying the crew while leaving the ship intact, if you don't have a teleporter? (Or equivalently, if you have one but no feasible boarding party.) I've managed to asphyxiate the crew once before, but in general I find this to be very difficult - it's hard to keep the O2 system down without causing extra damage to the ship's hull... with using fire bombs/beams to specifically target the crew? Did you have problems with rampant fire causing damage to systems and thus destroying the hull? In any non-boarding case, I recognise
